What’s Happening Right Now In EthiopiaA string of attacks on Christians by radical Muslims have left at
least two dead and thousands homeless in western Ethiopia.
Reports say Islamic extremists set fire to 59 church buildings and 28 Christian homes in Asendabo.
"One Orthodox believer, whose daughter is a member of Mekane Yesus Church, has been killed," an Ethiopian church leader told Compass Direct News. "Ministers were injured, and many more believers have been displaced."The violence spread to outlaying towns and now more than 4,000 Christians have been forced to flee for their lives.
It began when Muslims accused a Christian of desecrating a Quran by ripping out the pages of the Islamic holy book. Security forces were sent to the area, but they were overwhelmed by the enraged mob.Reports indicate the attacks upon Christians in the African country continue.
[Source: Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) News]Pray for God's intervention and that Ethiopian believers find refuge and safety from these attacks. Pray for the injured and the families of those who have lost their lives. Pray that the attackers will be delivered from the deception of Islam and seek salvation that only faith in Christ offers.
"Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy." 1 Peter 4:12-13
BTW, you can rip out all the pages in the Bible you want, I won't kill you for it.

"And there will be great earthquakes in various places ... the sea and the waves roaring; men's hearts failing them for fear and the expectation of those things that are coming upon the earth ... When you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near...Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away."
Prediction made by Jesus Christ.
Recorded in Luke 21:11,25,26,31,33.
… folks, now may be a good time to get on our knees and ask forgiveness – and give ours lives to Christ if you haven’t already done so … don't forget to mention the folks in Japan ....

In Christianity we are questioned with quizzes all the time. We are asked to buy into something while being pressured by the denominational entity presenting the quiz. Here's one for you.
Question: Which Christian symbol is pagan in origin?the Cross------------------the Fish-----------a Sacred Heart Medal-----a Mitre hat
What letter does the false god listed in Ezekiel 8:14 begin with? A letter "T" of course. Tammuz has been long associated with the cross symbol, long before Christians began to identify the cross with the crucifixion. (Note: on the "Master's Table" link, click "Pagan Symbols" and "The Cross~Pagan")
